  1. any leads on rear brake hose part number, a good source for the hose etc. ordered one from local parts and it looked correct but wrong male thread for the brass distribution union. Thanks DH
  2. try moss motor sports, select shop by model select the 100, 100-6, 3000 from left side menu select suspension then front suspension. i purchased the fulcrum pin part 65 and it is a direct replacement for the datsun fulcrum pin (for my 521). the other parts associated with the fulcrum pin may work also they appear to be the same or similar.
  3. Try moss motor sports. once at the site select shop by model and select the big healy's 100, 100-6, 3000. left menu select suspension then front suspension, part number 52 is the cotter bolt and i believe it will work, no guarantees because i havnt tried that part. i did buy the fulcrum pin part 65 and it is a direct replacement for the datsun fulcrum pin. i suspect the other parts 68 and 70 and the seals 69 will work also.
  4. continuing, i've started it a couple of time and no smoking although run time was seconds. still sorting out coolant and heater hoses and still havnt got fuel tank back from shop. on to other things front brakes redone as well as new fulcrum pins, did i mention i discovered the big Healy fulcrum pins are the same as the Datsun pins. good info for anyone searching for pins, and cheap also, relatively speaking that is.
  5. yeh finally figured out the bajno end is a separate piece and found the hoses at local parts store.
  6. Yeh, seems like the 521 forum is working out, great folks and lots of good info.
  7. As it turns out, i looked at the end of the banjo fitting and sure enough the end of the hose had a hex end that appeared to be removable. after application of freeall and heat the hose end detached from the banjo end. looks like those hoses indicated to fit the 521 do actually work. thanks again DH
  8. yep this piece has been put together so it cant be disassembled. I'll look for a suitable replacement that can be fitted without stacking washers etc. anyone out there with knowledge of a good replacement let me know.
  9. Checked my Chilton Foreign Car Repair Manual, French, British, Japanese Cars, vol II and it shows similar setup as mine, the hollow bolt is referred to as a connector bolt. In Chilton this particular application is for a 520, the 521 although the model is included in this manual.
  10. on this truck there is the banjo fitting at the end of the brake hose, a hollow bolt to carry brake fluid hat fits thru the banjo and threads into the wheel cylinder. the bolt has an open end where the bleeder screw fits. a sort of mdcf of a setup but it apparently worked except for the part where parts are nla.
  11. Here we go again, this time front brake hoses. Again, i've done numerous searches and can't find the right brake hoses for the front. I find all sorts of hoses that indicate they are for the front of a 521 but none have the correct banjo fitting that attaches to the wheel cylinder. It had been a while since i had taken the fronts apart so i bought hoses I thought would fit and started installing them and saw there would be no place to bleed the brakes. Found my old wheel cylinders and hoses and discovered the fitting attached to the wheel cylinder is some funky looking banjo
  12. Thanks, that's about what i thought, nla. I know someone who works at a parts store so i can likely look thru their hoses and come up with some suitable substitutes. Thanks again
  13. does anyone have a good source for coolant hoses for my 521. i can get upper and lower radiator hoses from O'Reilly's but no matter what search strings i use i cant seem to come up with a source(s) for the smaller molded heater and bypass hoses. any source information appreciated (I havnt contacted the local nissan dealer, yet) Thanks DH

    I need a top part generally shown as carburetor in parts diagrams, for a weber 32 36 carb. the choke shaft bores in mine are worn and not repairable. will consider buying a parts carb but would prefer just the top if you have one available. Thanks DH
